Wooden Miniature Matchbox Puzzle - Castle Fortress
We present to you for the first year a selection of charming miniature puzzles created to delight on top of the mantlepiece or as a stocking filler. These little decorations are made in Germany in the old tradition and have a cute, almost naïf feel to them due to the materials and shapes used.
You can collect all the matchbox puzzles (Small Village, Church, Castle Fortress, Christmas Tree & Nativity Scene) to create your very own mini nativity scene - an especially apt solution for a small flat - or slip one into a loved one's stocking for an adorable little gift.
For the fourth year running, Choosing Keeping is pleased to offer a wide range of Christmas Ornaments for your enjoyment.
These have been chosen with the following criteria in mind:
Origin: All our ornaments are 100% produced in Europe, specifically in towns and areas which have been historically involved in the production of Christmas items. In purchasing these items, you are directly contributing to the survival of a traditional cottage industry, supporting a village community - which we consider to have a significant historical and social value.
Quality: Being handmade, each bauble bears the human signature of its maker and painter. For good or bad this means each painted detail is original, full of personality and sometimes slightly strange!
Originality: Each individual maker has its own sense of aesthetics, vision, speciality and sense of humour. Some are hyper-realistic, others purposefully nostalgic and distressed, and many unapologetically eccentric!
Dimensions: 5.3 x 3.7 x 1.5cm approx.
